Obituary of Casey Joseph Lachenmayer

Casey Joseph Lachenmayer, 41, of Shickshinny, passed away suddenly, Saturday, November 27, 2021 at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital. He was born in Somerville, NJ on August 3, 1980 and was the son of John and Joan (Seiz) Lachenmayer of Hunlock Creek. Casey graduated from Northwest Area High School in 1998 and went on to get his bachelor's degree in Health Physics from Bloomsburg University. He was employed as a Health Physicist at the University of Pennsylvania for 10 years. No, he was not a PE teacher. He played football, and track and field for Northwest Area High School as well as 1 year of football at Bloomsburg University. Maybe he should have been a PE teacher. Casey had a highly inquisitive and technical mind with a passion for science and photography. He was always thinking of his next invention and taking a minimum of 50 photos of the same subject to catch every angle and then he'd want to show you each and every one. He was very proud of his fogbow picture that made it on to WNEP. Casey was a patriot and gun enthusiast buying his first gun at the ripe age of 28 when his wife was out of the country for work. He also enjoyed homebrewing beer and making wine as well as putting a minimum of 3 condiments on each meal he ate. Casey faced many challenges in life as we all do. Little did he know his biggest challenge would be the 22 5-to 7-year-olds he coached on the Northwest Area Junior Rangers D team for 2 years where his patience was truly tested. When Casey wasn't brewing beer or looking into conspiracy theories, he loved being a father. It was his greatest accomplishment next to taking a 5-minute shower - once. He enjoyed playing catch with his son and passing on his knowledge of football. They also played Madden where his son would show him all the slo-mo replays repeatedly just like he used to do to his friends. Casey and his daughter loved cooking and playing with snap circuits together. He passed on his love of science to her starting at a very young age. Hopefully he didn't pass on his love of brewing too soon. He was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, John D. and Hermina Lachenmayer and maternal grandparents, Mary and William Seiz. In addition to his parents, Casey is survived by his wife of 14 years, Rebecca (Boyd) Lachenmayer; daughter, Emma (11); son, Noah (9); sister, Aprile and husband Joe Coleman of Mountain Top; brother, John W. Lachenmayer and fiancé Nicole Biago of Exeter; many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Funeral services will be held Monday, December 6, 2021 at 6:00 PM from the Curtis L.
